A cool million for happy Lee

Have your say

WORKSOP’S golfing superstar is one million pounds richer after his last two tournaments.

Lee Westwood was recently beaten in the final of the Turkish Airlines World Golf Final by fellow Ryder Cup hero Justin Rose.

Rose pocketed £1m, while Westwood earned £650,000 after the medal match play tournament at the Antalya Golf Club.

Both are now heading to the BMW Masters in Shanghai and then the HSBC Champions in Shenzhen.

Westwood said: “I’m pleased to be playing well and getting back in the swing of things after the Ryder Cup, with no hangover from that. I’ve been successful. It’s not often you see me miserable is it? I try and play with a smile - I know how lucky I am.”
